Easy Blueberry Tart

This easy blueberry tart with a gluten free tart crust uses whole food ingredients for a decadent dessert that leaves you feeling good.

If you're on the lookout for a simple but beautiful dessert, this stunner is for you. Today I'm bringing you my easy blueberry tart with a chocolate gluten free tart crust. Using whole food ingredients, the bright, bursting flavor of fresh blueberries and the deep sweetness of honey shine through here. The crust is made with almond flour, cocoa powder, salt, coconut oil, an egg and honey. It's light and crumbly with a depth of flavor that really sets this tart apart.

The filling for this easy blueberry tart is quite simple. It calls for blueberries, chia seeds, water, vanilla and honey. That's it!

Finally, while it's not absolutely required, I encourage you to top the tart with homemade coconut milk whipped cream. It's simple and SO tasty, whether you're dairy free or not. (Never made coconut whipped cream before and need a confidence boost? I recorded a short video walking you through the process.)

Before we get to the recipe, I want to walk you through the basics of how to make this easy blueberry tart – it's quite simple!

You'll start by making the tart crust. Preheat your oven to 350F and grease your tart pan with butter or coconut oil. Then mix together your dry ingredients, almond flour, cocoa powder and salt. Next combine melted coconut oil, honey and an egg in a separate bowl. Add the wet ingredients to dry and mix well before pressing into your greased tart pan.

After making your gluten free tart crust, Bake for 12-15 minutes until the crust is slightly firm. Let it cool and then refrigerate while you make your filling.

To make the filling for this easy blueberry tart, add blueberries, honey and water to a pot. Bring it to a boil and then simmer for about 15 minutes over medium heat. Next add chia seeds to the filling mix and simmer for 5 more minutes. Let the filling cool and then store in the fridge until you're ready to serve the blueberry tart.

Your final step is to make coconut whipped cream. All you need to do is add the solid part of coconut cream from a can of full fat coconut milk along with honey and vanilla to a bowl and whip with a hand mixer until it reaches a whipped cream consistency. You can leave the liquid, or coconut water, from the can of coconut milk for a smoothie!

When you're ready to serve the tart, simply pour the prepared filling into your crust, top with homemade whipped cream and enjoy!

Easy Blueberry Tart Tips & Variations

Experimenting with baking recipes is challenging but there are a couple of changes you can make. If you'd like to mix up the fruit, this chocolate tart crust would be delicious with other berries as well. Try a mix or go with raspberries or cherries – you can't go wrong!

To make sure you get the best results on this easy blueberry tart, here are a few tips to keep in mind:

  • Make sure to thoroughly grease the tart pan so you can easily remove the tart.
  • Let the crust cool completely before adding the filling.
  • For best results, add the filling to the tart crust right before serving. Also wait to top the tart with the coconut whipped cream until right before serving.
  • To make it easier to make your coconut whipped cream, refrigerate your can of coconut milk overnight. You'll then be able to easily scoop off the solid portion. I've experimented with quite a few brands of coconut milk and find that the Thai Kitchen full fat coconut milk works best for whipped cream. (See my full rankings here!)
  • If you don't want to make coconut whipped cream, this blueberry tart is also delicious with nice cream.

That's all you need to know!

Is this gluten free tart recipe healthy?

I would argue that this gluten free tart recipe is quite healthy for a dessert. It's entirely sweetened with honey, contains super foods like blueberries, chia seeds and almond flour, AND it does not contain anything you wouldn't feel good about feeding your family.

Here are some of the nutritional highlights:

Almonds (Magnesium, Vitamin E, Potassium)

This recipe features almonds in the form of almond flour.

Almonds are good for your heart and also help lower LDL cholesterol. Furthermore, one serving of almonds also has as much calcium as 1/4 cup of milk! Thus they're a particularly good choice if you're dairy-free.

Cocoa Powder (Antioxidants)

Rich in the antioxidant known as polyphenols, cocoa powder may help decrease inflammation and improve blood flow to your brain. Possibly due to its flavanols, cocoa also positively impacts mood! Cocoa powder's flavanols may also help reduce blood pressure. Less processed chocolate products have more flavanols. This is one superfood it's easy to get the kiddos to eat!

Coconut Oil (MCTs)

Much of the beneficial nutritional impact from coconut oil stems from the medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) it contains. Processed differently than other fats, your liver turns MCTs into ketones, which are beneficial for brain health. The lauric acid found in coconut also has beneficial antimicrobial properties.

Honey (Antibacterial properties)

Honey has antibacterial and antioxidant properties, which are strongest in darker honey. Buy raw local honey when possible as filtering the honey can diminish its nutrients.

Blueberries (Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Antioxidants)

Arguably one of the healthiest foods in the world, blueberries are packed with fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K, manganese and antioxidants. Pro tip – wild blueberries are even higher in some antioxidants, look for them in the frozen section!

Chia Seeds (Fiber, Healthy Fats, Omega-3s)

With quite a mild flavor, chia seeds are a great way to add fiber, protein and healthy fats to smoothies. They absorb water, so will also thicken items like smoothies and this tart filling if you let it sit for a few minutes. Chia seeds also boast a super high Omega-3 (ALA) content – the highest of any known plant source.

How can I meal prep this easy blueberry tart?

This easy blueberry tart is perfect for meal prep. You make both the crust and the filling ahead of time, making it a perfect choice for a prep-ahead dessert. I do recommend making the coconut whipped cream soon before serving if possible but it will still be delicious if you can't do that.
